Growing Up Asian in America Contest

Every week, almost one thousand Bay Area students in grades kindergarten through12 submit artwork, essays, poems and videos on a single theme, competing over $20,000 in cash and prizes. Young Asian Americans take pride in their identities, which helps others understand the varied experiences of our youth growing up in the Bay Area's diverse communities. 

2016 Contest Theme: Give Someone a Gold Medal

In celebration of the 2016 Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro this summer, the essay theme is inspired to make you think about one person in your life you would honor with a gold medal. Who would you honor- whether in your family, school or community- and why?

The entry deadline is Friday, March 4!
